Lately I’ve been finding myself spending more and more time with collage. It feels perfectly tied to the 90s resurgence happening in fashion right now and it connects to my 90s high school experience, where I spent most of my down time collaging (and then laminating or decoupaging) everything and anything with photos I tore out of Rolling Stone and Vogue.
I’m always finding collage artists to follow on Instagram and today I wanted to shout out one of my favorites, Ruben Guadalupe Marquez. Ruben is a photographer and collage artist based in San Francisco who incorporates brightly colored botanical elements into his work. I personally love his dedication to celebrating great LGBTQ artists, writers and entertainers and whenever I look at his Instagram feed, I feel uplifted and inspired. If you need some visual inspiration (Ruben also has an Etsy shop with wearable versions of his work), click here to check out his page (If you love RuPaul’s Drag Race like I do, you’re in for a great surprise). And if you need more online reading inspiration, check out our favorite stories from around the web this week. xo, Grace
